The introduction presents an overview of the primary and secondary sources examined in the book. The premise of the study is that contemporary texts written by authors from and outside the Hexagon, though distinct in style, thematic concerns and ideological stances, share a number of discursive and narrative features crystallized around the proprioceptive and remanent dimensions of the colonial. Through dissemination, empathy, indirection, obliqueness and mediation, the colonial situates contemporary narratives in a larger historical framework while also reminding readers of the many layers and force fields that constitute their textual fabric.
